Night White Tea
We have been looking for a ‘pure’ white tea for many years. Searching for a complement to our unflavored green teas, Organic Sencha and Pinhead Gunpowder. We wanted to be blown away, and so we have been patient. Night White Tea is our answer.
This tea is plucked in the hours before sunrise when the moon is still in the sky. The loose leaf tea leaves are hand withered and produce a delicate, light brew. The dry leaves appear white as if reflected by moonlight.
You may taste a grassy nuttiness in a cuppa Night White Tea. This tea brews very clear and I was happy with the 3rd infusion. Later infusions were too weak, regardless of the steep time. But oh what a tea for the first 3 cups. Eureka was the lasting thought!
20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf tea.
Brewing Instructions for Night White Tea
Steep this tea multiple times as white loose leaf teas have far more flavor than traditional tea bags due to the superior quality and freshness. Tea strength is a personal decision, so please experiment to determine your preferences.
Use water between 180 and 190 degrees F, or allow boiling water to stand for 2 minutes. Steep your Night White Tea for as little as 1 minute, but not more than 4 minutes. For each of the following steeps, use water of the same temperature and double the steep time. Night White Tea can be steeped at least 2 times and, depending on the steep times, as many as 4 times. Also, consider blending the first steep with the following steeps to balance the tea; if you do not want to drink all the tea, store it in the fridge for wonderful iced tea.
Store in a dry place.
